Not a lot to report this time, but:

  • Indira Reddy has a new publication (no, she hasn’t left Literally Literary!). You should give it a look!
  • We’re looking into launching some new features at Literally Literary. One of these that we’ve officially decided on is a section about the writing process. We keep getting submissions for them and, frankly, I’m tired of turning them away. We feel it’s related enough to literary writing that it fits here. So, if you’ve got pieces about the process of writing, inspiration, education, or just want to expound on the experience of being a writer, how it feels and what it means to you, send em on in! They still need to be somewhat related to literary writing, however. If I get something on how to write self-help articles — el rejecto!
  • I wanted to restate that the focus of Literally Literary is literary writing. This does not involve Essay pieces unless those essay pieces are about a literary work, or (new) essays on the writing process and experience as related in the point above. This does not include editorial pieces, lists, self-help, advice, etc. We publish stories and poetry.

II. Featured on the Front Page

You can find it here: Literally Literary Front Page, baby!

These will also be featured on Twitter and Facebook (and soon Instagram and possibly other social media sites, we’ll keep you posted), so, if you do not wish your writing to be displayed outside of Medium, please let us know.

Also, if you would like to be tagged in your Twitter shout-outs and you don’t have a Twitter account visible on your Medium account, please feel free to leave a private note on your piece with your Twitter name, and if it is selected for the front page, we’ll be sure to use that.
